Since the beginning of the year, Studiorola has started to gradually migrate the 3D Polygonal modelling system to Blender 2.5 which is significantly different from prior version.
Prior to that, all commercial works were done using Blender 2.49 and training/workshop materials were also based on Blender 2.49 as well.
Currently for commercial projects, we still use a combination of 2.49 and 2.5. In addition to a vastly improved interface, Blender 2.5 offers significantly faster rendering time.
We have also started training individuals and students using Blender 2.5. It appears that the learning curve is significantly shorter as compared to prior versions of the software.
Our training materials are ready for Blender 2.5 and have been re-designed. The training materials have been re-written to help even beginners grasp the principle of 3D in the shortest time possible.
